I am a born and raised true to heart Texan! I have three grown children and last year married the man I have wanted to find for over 30 years. Funny thing, however.... I am one of those who "live to eat" -- and I married someone who only "eats to live". That's okay, because he is a fire captain I take out my non-stop cooking talents on his entire fire dept crew!!! He told me I am making he and his crew fat, but don't believe that for an instant. If I could, I would never leave my kitchen, I would live in it and cook all the time. Guess it's a good thing I am in a sales consultant position that encompasses about 30% of N. TX, so I am on the road alot.
My favorite things to cook
My strength is desserts and appetizers. I love grilled foods but have always left that up to the men in my household. I have always done alot of cooking/entertaining.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The traditions dearest to my heart are those of most baby boomers whose Moms stayed home and made wonderful comfort food related meals! Boomers...you know and remember what those are, no need for me to elaborate! And of course I AM a southern girl - ah, that good southern food rocks!
My cooking triumphs
My triumphs always lie in those recipes that I "re-create" and in turn, make them my own!
My cooking tragedies
I overmarinated chicken breasts one time in a fruit (pineapple) marinate and it pretty much turned it to mush.
